The Food and Drug Administration ordered the two remaining makers of the mesh — Boston Scientific and Coloplast — to stop selling it immediately, saying the companies failed to show the mesh is safe for long-term use. Several other major manufacturers, including Johnson &Johnson, previously stopped making the mesh. The FDA action does not apply to surgical mesh used to treat oth...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewThe purpose of this article is to review and comment on the recent medical evidence regarding minimally invasive procedures for apical pelvic organ prolapse repair.Recent FindingsSacrocolpopexy remains the “gold standard” repair for apical prolapse for those who desire to maintain sexual function, and minimally invasive approaches offer equal efficacy with lower risk than open sacrocolpopexy. Similar to the impact on hysterectomy rates, the introduction of robotic technology has converted a large number of open abdominal sacrocolpopexy procedures to a minimally invasive approach in the ...

This study aims to investigate functional results and recurrence rate after stapled transanal rectal resection (STARR) for rectocele associated with obstructive defection syndrome (ODS).MethodsA study was conducted on patients with ODS symptoms associated with symptomatic rectocele  ≥ 3 cm on dynamic defecography who had STARR at our institution between 01/2007 and 12/2015. Data were prospectively collected and analyzed. ODS was evaluated using the Wexner constipation score. Primary outcomes were functional results, determined by the improvement in 6-month postoperative Wexner constipation score, and ...

Abstract Pelvic floor dysfunctions are a complex condition in elderly women; pelvic organ prolapse, urinary or fecal incontinence, constipation, pelvic pain, and sexual dysfunction are common problems. The goal of surgical treatment is functional reconstruction with symptom management and repair of anatomic defects. The recent advancements in surgical treatment of pelvic floor dysfunction allow several good options for choosing the best surgery for each patient. The vaginal procedure is traditionally the gold standard approach for elderly patients, but abdominal surgery is increasing as a mini-invasive approach an...
